Supreme Court rules Geetha unqualified to serve as MP


The Supreme Court upheld the Appeal Court decision that Galle district parliamentarian Geetha Kumarasinghe is not qualified to be elected as a parliamentarian since she holds dual citizenship.

The judgment was delivered by Supreme Court Judge Sisira de Abrew who was a member of five-judge-bench which heard the appeal.

On October 3, a five-judge-bench comprising Chief Justice Priyasath Dep, Justice Buwaneka Aluwihare, Justice Sisira de Abrew, Justice Anil Goonaratne and Justice Nalin Perera reserved judgment in the appeal filed by Geetha Kumarasinghe and parties were directed to file their written submissions before October 10.
